Children & Youth Ministries

Sunday School

We offer Sunday School for children age 3 through High School every Sunday at 9:20 AM. Children age 3 through 5th grade meet downstairs. We begin with group music time and then Bible teaching.

Youth in grades 6th, 7-8th, and 9-12th each meet in individual classrooms downstairs. Join us!


Children are welcome to remain in the worship service. If needed the following are available: – Quiet Bags in the back of the sanctuary for use during the service. – Cry Room and/or Nursery in the lower level of the church. We do not offer nursery care for our 8:00 AM service, please use the cry room for your nursery needs. Thank you!
